WINCHESTER, Va. – Junior Andrew Coffman is in his first year of blogging about the football program. This week, he recaps the Hornets final non-league win and looks forward to its final away game of the regular season.

With 9:46 to go in the first quarter last Saturday versus Apprentice, we did something we had not done since week two against NC Wesleyan.  We rushed for a touchdown! It would be the first of five total rushing scores with Cory Bell recording three touchdowns on 10 rushes for 48 yards.

Jalen Hudson and Jordyn Hunter each recorded a rushing touchdown on rushes for 69 and 5 yards, respectively.

Hayden Bauserman had 19 completions on 36 passing attempts for 272 yards and two touchdowns and got to sit for the fourth quarter as we had a big lead. Defensively, Devontae Dunn and Nate Hill both led the team with six tackles each. Randy Oliver, Jordan Heisen, and Devontae Dunn had a total of two sacks while 11 Hornets had a combined 10 tackles-for-loss for 27 yards.

At SU we pride ourselves on practicing special teams more than any other team. Special teams can win games and we practice accordingly. In preparation for different opponents, we have wrinkles that can shift momentum and get us big plays. This past weekend I was given the opportunity to enact one of those wrinkles on a fake punt. The fake was not necessarily successful, but it was a wrinkle that teams we play in the future will have to prepare for.

Freshman Brant Butler has excelled in punting, stepping in for senior Christian Arias who suffered a leg injury a couple weeks ago, and has averaged 47.3 yards per punt. The time we allocate towards special teams translates directly to the success our kickoff return team has had recently. We ran a kick back two weeks ago versus Guilford and almost had one this past weekend as well (it was called back due to a penalty).

Looking ahead to this week: going into the Hampden-Sydney game last year we were in an almost identical situation (6-2 overall and 3-1 in the ODAC) with an opportunity to win the league.

This year we are in the driver's seat.

We control our own destiny and we do not need any outside help to secure an ODAC championship. With that being said, it's still one game at a time. Just Win.

Nothing else matters except for the game that will be played at Hampden-Sydney tomorrow at 1:00.

This week in practice we have competed with energy that has been absent since homecoming week. Last year we got caught overlooking H-SC and paid the price. This year history will not repeat itself. It's time to prove once again that picking us seventh was a mistake.

Yours truly,

Wavy
